Brief synopsis

”LAS HERMANAS DE ROCINANTE“ is a film about Pili, Roneo, Pometa, Capitana, Pim and Curly. The white, brown and black horses, small ponies, chubby and skinny ones – they all have been stranded close to the sea on the Costa Blanca. Some of these horses were left to die due to a lack of empathy. Others have been used as toys all their lives and have forgotten how to live as horses. Some of them are direct victims of the economic crisis, because their owners can no longer afford to feed them nor to give them shelter. This is why Lois and her volunteers, consisting of children and adults, care for the abandoned herd. Together they try to return dignity back to the horses.
